Grains? In Commercial Pet Food?

Grains? In Commercial Pet Food?

Grains? In Commercial Pet Food? While this may come as a surprise to you, commercial diets are not well-suited to the dog’s and cat’s nutritional needs, physical make up or metabolism. In other words, they simply, are not ‘biologically appropriate.’ They are primarily made up of grain products and are cooked/processed at high enough temperatures to destroy any true available nutrition. Contemporary canine nutritionists agree that dogs, being carnivores, are not only unable to process complex carbohydrates (grains & potato products) well they have no dietary need for them. Studies demonstrate that unlike humans/omnivores, dogs (carnivores) do not ‘carbo-load,’ that is, they do not store up energy from meals high in complex carbohydrates. While human athletes successfully practice this technique, it results in an accumulation of lactic acid in dogs (which causes the muscular pain experienced after unaccustomed exercise). Based on research in the dog and with other species it has been found that dogs can be more healthfully maintained without carbohydrates, especially when the diet supplies enough fat and protein from which the metabolic requirement for glucose is derived.

Dogs, being the carnivores they are, are not designed to eat grains and do not produce the necessary amounts of enzymes in their saliva (amylase, for example) to start the break-down of carbohydrates and starches; amylase in saliva is something omnivorous and herbivorous animals possess, but not carnivorous animals. This lack of the necessary enzymes, places the burden entirely on the pancreas, forcing it to try to produce large amounts of amylase and cellulase to deal with the starch, cellulose, and carbohydrates in grains and plant matter. (The carnivore’s pancreas was not designed to secrete cellulase to split the cellulose into glucose molecules), nor have dogs “evolved” to become efficient at digesting and assimilating and utilizing gains or plant material as a source of high quality protein. Herbivores do those sorts of things. Read Canine and Feline Nutrition Case, Carey and Hirakawa Published by Mosby, 1995

Grains are full of carbohydrates which once eaten, easily convert to sugars. Cancer cells feed on sugars, and it is believed that by decreasing the amount of carbohydrate in the diet, we may greatly reduce the risk of our pets getting cancer (which is a growing problem among modern dogs and cats). Grains and or grain based foods are also, the main cause of yeast infections, such as Candida Albicans in our pets. Symptoms of yeast over-growth or infections include: habitual scratching, usually the ears, sides of the torso and underbelly chronic ear infections incessant licking of the genitals or the paws or both lick granulomas rashes, most often on the underbelly hair loss blackening and rough skin patches Allergies (so called) and when the yeast begins to move into the head; loss of hearing; loss of eyesight; loss of intelligence, memory and comprehension. Yeast infections always start somewhere in the digestive system; but then move to the genital area, on to the ears; then finally to the brain, taking over the entire body. It is insidious. In allopathic/conventional medicine, these symptoms are treated with antibiotics or steroids; which only serve to make matters worse by killing off the friendly flora or bacteria in the body and thus lowering the immune system.

For more information on Yeast Infections click HERE

The multi-billion dollar pet food industry (yes they even make “prescription dog foods”, advertise their use of high-quality, whole grains in their food. They say these provide an “excellent source of protein” for our dogs and cats.

Large amounts of grain may be an appropriate source of protein for omnivore species…but NOT so for our cats and dogs that are primarily designed to eat meat as their protein!

This brings me to what ‘grains’ in commercial pet food really are. When whole grain is used in dog food, (and even cat food), (be it oats, barley, wheat, rice, kumut or corn) it has often been deemed unfit for human consumption due to mold, contaminants, or poor handling practices. Some brands reportedly contain damaged, spilled, and spoiled grain known as “the tail of the mill.” This can include the hulls, chaff, straw, dust, dirt, and sand swept from the mill floor at the end of each week, which are totally unnatural nutritional ingredients! Most of these ingredients, such as peanut hulls, are used strictly for “filler” and have no nutritional value at all! They are also economical for the pet food companies! Imagine AAFCO approving ‘the tail of the mill’ as acceptable grains in your pet’s diet! Unbelievable? Sorry but true! GRAINS – Could this be why your pet scratches constantly? Yes, grains are one of the most common causes of allergies in pets. Other symptoms brought on by feeding grains and the over-growth of yeast may be as broad ranging but serious as: Mal-absorption of food nutrients, joint problems, arthritis, diabetes, colitis and kidney or bladder infections. Too much money has already been spent by American pet owners to their veterinarians, to “treat” the above-mentioned symptoms. It’s a shame that most veterinarians do not take their patient’s diet into consideration FIRST, when in fact, most of these symptoms are directly related to what the pet is eating. Sadly the feeding of cooked and grain laden foods help keep your veterinarian in a thriving business by charging you great amounts of needless money on lab work, steroid pills, creams, shampoo and antibiotics to treat the symptoms of itching as well as keeping you coming back for frequent vet visits when the symptoms return as soon as the medications run out.. Not all Carbohydrates in Pet Food are Grains Potatoes – With the word out on grains not being digestible and causing allergic reactions in our dogs, the latest trend in pet foods is the elimination of most grains or even all and the addition of potatoes to help bind the processed product together and be a source of carbohydrates. In theory it all sounds great right? Never mind potatoes are still not digestible to dogs and cats but they also contain a carcinogen- *acrylamide. As a daily maintenance food, potatoes are not a good thing! They may actually be a part of the cancer epidemic in our pets! The August 14, 2002 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, reported presence of high levels of acrylamide in carbohydrate rich foods like potatoes. *Acrylamide induces gene mutations and has been found in animal tests to cause malignant stomach tumors. It is also known to cause damage to the central and peripheral nervous system. Tapioca Tapioca is often used instead of potatoes in processed pet food as a binder. Tapioca is almost pure carbohydrate and on top of this fact, it is often chemically modified before formulation in food products and as such, presents a threat to health by binding essential minerals that play key roles in many critical enzyme systems, and also producing the disease, parakeratosis. Furthermore, natural tapioca contains cyanogenic glycosides (specifically linamarin and lotaustralin) which yield hydrocyanic acid upon hydrolysis (as occurs in the stomach). Hydrocyanic acid (hydrogen cyanide) is highly toxic to humans and animals. The toxicity is dose dependent and therefore animals or humans fed a steady diet of any food that yields hydrogen cyanide are at risk with accumulation over time. Genetically Modified (GM) Products

I will not get too deep into the controversy over GMOs in foods here but do want to point out that the FDA does not require pet food (or human food for that matter) labels to inform consumers if a product contains a GM grain or meat source.

So, as I see it, if our pets were never designed to eat grains or carbohydrates in the first place and they have no access to them in the wild, why on earth would we want to feed them? Would you feed a horse or a rabbit a juicy steak? Why not? So why would you feed your pets a cooked diet that contained grains or other carbohydrates?

Dr Jeannie and The Whole Dog recommends an all raw S.A.R.F. (Species Appropriate Raw Foods) diet of raw meat, bones and organs.

A consultation with a veterinary naturopath or carnivore nutritionist highly recommended before transitioning your pet to a raw diet.

Canine Natural Health and Nutritional Consulting

Jeanette (Jeannie) Thomason, C.V.N.D.
Certified Doctor of Veterinary Naturopathy and Certified Small Animal Nutritionist

As a veterinary naturopath, I am committed to providing you with the necessary information to empower you to improve and prolong the life of your beloved companion animals. My desire and mission in offering my consulting services is to help you help your dog achieve optimal health and nutrition by giving you a practical insight into improving your dog’s health through preventive, natural care, proper species appropriate nutrition and other natural modalities; which you can immediately implement; thereby giving your pets a longer healthier life naturally.

Why Have A Consultation?

* Do you question if your dog’s nutrition is adequate? * Does your dog have physical or emotional problems that you would like to address with alternative therapies but didn’t know where to start? * Looking for natural products but are a little confused by the huge variety on the market? * Have a new puppy you want to start out on the “right paw”? * Would you like to discuss complementary wellness techniques, nutrition and health issues regarding your pet? * Have you been thinking about finally leaving commercial pet food behind and moving on to a raw diet for your dog? * To discuss your pet’s symptoms that concern you * To learn of possible alternative therapies when facing a major health decision for your pet Dogs have specific nutritional needs and the needs of individual dogs will vary. With the proper nutrition and care, our dogs live longer and happier lives. Poor nutrition is a direct cause of the many problems dogs suffer – allergies, unhealthy skin and coats, cancer, etc. The good news is that you can protect your precious companion. Whether your canine companions are currently healthy and you’d like to see them stay that way, or you are facing a challenge with your dog, such as arthritis, heart disease, allergies or obesity, I would love to assist you in making the best possible life choices for your best friend.

My mission is to help my clients learn about their dog’s needs regarding nutrition and care, helping them achieve balance and maintaining or restoring good health. With my years of academic studies, experience and research, I will take the guesswork out of any aspect of dog care for you.

As much as I would like to, I just cannot answer everyone’s questions who email me for advice for their pets. If I answered all of them, I would have no time to consult with my clients, which I have to do in order to continue to keep my business open and viable. So, ALL questions will need to be scheduled for a consultation. And, yes, I will have to charge for that time just as your veterinarian or any other health care consultant would do when you are seeking their guidance and assistance. I hope you understand – and respect why I have to structure things in this fashion.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY CONSULTATION? I will go over your dog’s health history form and based upon what you tell me, I will formulate a concise plan of action for you to begin with your dog that will undoubtedly begin with a complete and maybe even entirely new concept in how to properly nourish your dog. In addition I use modalities that include herbal remedies, aromatherapy and supplementation to name a few. By the end of the consultation you will have an action plan to implement with your dog. You will be expected to fully participate by implementing the plan of action we will develop together in order to bring about optimal health in your canine companion.


The amount depends on where you are now with a whole health approach to your dog’s care. Pricing ranges from $85-$200 depending on the level of health your dog currently has and what your level of knowledge is on whole, natural health for dogs. The average cost for a total wellness consultation is typically $175. Additional costs will be any herbal remedies, aromatherapy or supplements I may suggest, although, I always leave it up to you whether to obtain those from me or on your own. We will discuss those options during the consultation.You will be able to insert any concerns or questions you’d like me to write you about within the Health History Form (see below – all forms must be completed and signed PRIOR to the consultation).

EXTENDED SUPPORT is $49.50 per ten question email following the initial consultation.


I accept all Credit Cards through PayPal. I will send you a PayPal request for payment invoice once we determine what your dog’s needs are. My goal is to help you help your dog be well.


This varies from client to client. If you heed and implement what is discussed during our consultation then you may only need to have the occasional extended support consultation. If however, your pet is older and/or quite ill then a regular monthly consult may be needed until your dog is well on the way to wellness.


Consultations are a two-way discussion process whereby you and I work together to develop individualized strategies that will assist in helping you to understand and effectively use methods leading to a healthier dog. This begins by having you complete and submit the Health History Profile. All consultations are individually customized for YOUR dog and are delivered in electronic format (email) .


Refunds are available only if you cancel 24 hours in advance of your appointment – prior to the agreed upon delivery date of an email consultation. Refunds are not available once you have received your consultation.
